A sixth woman has now accused New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.
The female aide claimed Cuomo touched her inappropriately during an encounter at his executive mansion last year when she had been summoned for work, the Times Union reports.
The staffer has not been named and no other details of the alleged incident were immediately available.
The complaint was reportedly made by other staffers in the Executive Chamber.
His office was made aware of the allegation over the weekend and reported it to the attorney general’s office, which is charge of the probe into the allegations made by five other women.
‘All allegations that we learn of directly or indirectly are going promptly to the investigators appointed by the attorney general,’ Cuomo’s acting counsel Beth Garvey said following the sixth allegation.
When he first publicly addressed allegations made against him last week, Cuomo denied ever touching anyone inappropriately.
‘I want you to know this from me directly, I never touched anyone inappropriately,’ he said during a press briefing.
The latest allegation against Cuomo brings the total to six accusers.
Two more former aides came forward over the weekend to accuse the Democrat of sexual misconduct.
